That was how my husband and I would get our son to sleep when he was an infant. You do what you have to to get them to sleep, and to get some for yourself.

I used to tell my son before I dropped him off at preschool: "Play hard, have fun, get dirty!" He gets a bath at bedtime, and, well, that's what washing machines are for.
